Switching Possesion

Divide the Pitch in to three zones A,B,C size depending on the ability of players being coached.

Divide players into three equal teams A,B,C who all start in designated zone

Begin the session with team A who attempt to pass the ball three times amongst their team, once completed switch the play to Zone C who also have to complete three passes before they in turn play back to Zone A

Zone B players send a maximum of two players into the area the ball is in, and attempt to win the ball and pass back to their own zone. If successful they keep possession as long as possible while one player from team A and C attempt to win the ball back and return it to the outer zones and the session continues.


When middle team win possession in outer zones, support players from middle zone rotate with two opposition players and the game continues.
